[texts]Songs of a little bear for string sextet, based on The Poohratorio (Winnie the Pooh - Now we are six) - David W Solomons (dwsolo)
Many decades ago I, David W Solomons, wrote "The Poohratorio" - a children's cantata based on The Expotition to the North Pole from A A Milne's Now we are six (Winnie the Pooh).

[texts]Poohratorio (The Expotition to the North Pole) - David W Solomons
This setting of the chapter "Expotition to the North Pole" from A A Milne's Now we are Six (Winnie the Pooh) was composed in 1977 by me, David W Solomons.

However, I must emphasize that public performances and commercial recordings should not be made until...
